is a tradition involved in the defense supply chain and how it matters this symposium seemed appropriate and timely and one of the missions as he mentioned that the potomac institute is to elevate the policy discussions on the matter is of critical when portents to the nation. from not going to speak today to defy dewitt will only be to fill in for the deputy assistant secretary of, and security who unfortunately had to cancel at the last minute. i did have a short article you'll see on the front table and it's also on the web site, but the supply chain threat is as much a matter of national security as it is cybersecurity it's part and parcel and in some ways it is as difficult if not more difficult is ongoing in washington to address this nation needs a couple some discussion of how to approach this matter with the real concerns are even before we get to what the answers are it must be recognized as a threat. it must be recognized the status quo is not acceptable and it's not even possible. it's not going to remain the same one we were a mother and we must recognize the government inte
dimensions of cyber innovation both on the threat side and the defensive side. we are also joined by paul nguyen. he looks nice and all this but he's one of these guys that if you dig deep into his past he's a cool hacker. [laughter] he has a hacking pass and he put that past to good use. so we have to who really understand what the cutting edge of what's going on. let me open up, would you think about innovation, i am not an x. or industries by two very much realize, it has been discussed in this morning and perhaps a clichÉ of the young man in the philippines years ago who hatched the love bug virus. it just seems to me that we have evolved so much of far beyond us you've got stuxnet, major innovation. you still have the paul nguyen after just having fun and hacking into systems. but i would love to get a quick snapshot of how you both see this date like them both in the court world at the national security world of what you think the biggest headlines are. as you do what i want to throw one buys out and get, particularly catherine state, i would've these in glossy magazines called sov
in the department of defense for managing the supply chain and then all of a sudden decide that you are going to apply that single solution to everything the department of defense by is. we wouldn't people to buy anything if that were the case. >> the only thing i would add is the trusten suppliers of objects but also as melissa referred to in her talk those that support those things the trust that might install or maintain them as well. >> i think we are talking about multiple definitions of a trusted supplier to the if you look at it from the business point of view, many of the supply years have to go through a set of requirements that means whatever those security brandt integrity of the overall company whether it's a background investigation the companies have to go through to supply to other companies to meeting all of the legal requirements, for example the corruption act for mean osha standards and i'm just citing the ones in the united states they have to meet the requirements of many different countries laws, and sometimes it is difficult to become a supplier to a high brand-name a a
define a new defense strategy for the twenty-first century in a remarkable process last winter, steered personally by president obama which was unprecedented in my experience. the president brought together the leadership of the department of defense and others in a conversation about the future trajectory of national defence that went on through several months. we made a series of decisions through that process to design a balance, effective defense strategy, taking into account cuts imposed upon us and above all making the transition. .. >> underlying our security engagement with the region is our support for longstanding principles that go well beyond security. a free and open access to commerce, of a just international order that upholds the rule of law, of open access to all domains, and of the peaceful resolution of disputes. we seek a peaceful asia-pacific region where all the states of the region, all of them, can enjoy the benefits of security and continue to prosper just as they have for almost 70 years, since the valiant efforts of the brave men and women who fought
and defense is going to take some kind of a hit and that is going to be pretty ugly medicine for republicans. you know, fred if you were sitting down with harry reid and nancy pelosi and steny hoyer or glen if you were sitting down with mitch mcconnell or john boehner, or eric cantore and they are about to go in the room and get a lot of love on their hands and the ankle deep in blood -- not to be too vivid. [laughter] .. sort of point out sort of all the different angles, and i really believe, you know, there are times in the country when you are not looking for abc. you are looking from one a-z. i'm writing a book on the 1815 compromise, and it seems people listen more. but putting my fact had on what i would tell them is -- and i'm sure glen could say this, too, talking to people on the phone, talking to people in focus groups, i'm always very impressed as a few good american that when you get down to it to the american people have common sense. they may not like some medicine. like with my kids, none of the medicines of the pharmacy you put a sweetener and they have it all the time that
the issues like the defense budget, and that's why it's issues like that and the ones the we don't even know about that make me weary of all of these street line projections that we are making in the future based on what things look like right now. >> do any of you want to address that point? >> that is the point about iran and the likelihood that we would actually enter into some sort of military action regardless of who wins. >> right now it's not clear to me. >> questions from the audience. yes, sir. >> microphone from the left. >> governor romney's that he wants to create 12 million jobs during his term, that's to hundred 50,000 jobs a month. in the past the u.s. has always been an exporter and that is what created jobs. how do you see his promise of creating 12 million jobs in four years? >> unlikely. [laughter] does anyone want to elaborate on that? >> i think we are in a completely different job market. the convention back in 1992 was if you work hard and play by the rules you should expect to be in the american middle class and i said condensation but that's basically what he's been
is the progress of technology and the events of the increased efficiency of technology and missile defense which probably is grain to have different kinds of arms control going down to the ctbt among other things. >> thank you. it's good to see you. picture of arms control over the next four years. welcome from the perspective of president obama come he has made no secret of the fact of his so-called prague initiative that he is eager to pursue a continued step by step productions in the nuclear weapons. so that is one priority goal for this administration. it is a goal by the way that is laid out in the preamble to the new s.t.a.r.t. treaty. so it is a goal that the russian federation and the united states have both articulate it. sir, i think that we will be looking for ways to accomplish those reductions. the president the day that he signed the treaty leigh of three goals for the next round of negotiations. he said we want to seek reductions in the non-strategic nuclear weapons as tactical nuclear weapons, non-deployed nuclear weapons, that is weapons tel dan the storage facilities, and redu
shooting, do self-defense. those three things are second amendment guarantees are not the reasons why we have the second amendment. they are the benefits we get from the second amendment. the reason we have a second amendment is to guard against tyranny because our founding fathers understood -- [applause] founding fathers understood that if he did not have an armed populist a tyrant could take over america, so we have a responsibility not just to defend the second amendment in words, but do so, indeed, by hunting and target practicing and also self-defense, but do so in a responsible, educated, gun safety weight. put it in our culture and let's have safety in their rejection of all violence in this country. [applause] moderator: thank you very much. i want to remind the crowd that as the answer if you applied during their answer they may stop which costs them time. keep that in mind if you applauded during their answer. thank you very much. 30-seconds for a bottle. christie: i talked to a lot of people involved in law enforcement, and many of them have said this is just as much a people
israel's iron dome which is the missile defense system. we did it collectively. and when israel was faced with the palestinians going to the united nations, and declaring, asking for unilateral declaration of statehood, there was one country, one country that stood with israel and stop that, and that was the united states of america with me talking to the president of the united states and the secretary of state making sure that did not happen. >> moderator: thank you. our next question comes from brent boynton it will directed to senator heller. >> those of us have heard of the drought come and different degrees of nevadans, just how devastating it can be to the stake him if it were listed as an endangered species. economist tells it would shut down a lot of our economic development. realistically, what can you do in the senate to prevent that from happening. heller: there's a lot we can do on this particular issue. it's a huge issue. for someto grow. hunting and fishing in the state of nevada, i have a little bit of experience with it. 's stage growls isn't a big issue for the state of
the requirements the defense contractors must send out notices to the employees were going to be laid off and those employers are already talking about layoffs and they are getting nervous. if you are a dividend investor and will get 15 to 45%, january 1 with some probability, you are starting to worry about being in the market. so this isn't something that is going to wait until january. it's already hurting the economy and if we look over the fiscal cliff would be responsible and extreme, so the entire issue in the fiscal cliff is to get from here to the spring of 2013 being good stewards of the economy and not costing the recession and that should be the goal. now, if you look at the pieces of the cliff, the first payroll tax cut, this temporary holiday i think there is pretty much a bipartisan consensus that is going to go away. there are some tax increases. it is inconceivable but we are going to get rid of the taxes in the affordable care act between now and january 1 savitt is another increase that is going to happen for sure. that puts a premium on avoiding the rest of these tax hikes and s
think the will of the government is to do big things like national defense and build highways and education. and also making environment where it's easy enough for businesses to hire people and employ people and kind of stay out of everybody's way. >> host: how is it doing on those? >> caller: i don't think it's doing really well when the minimum wage is sitting at $10 an hour in some states. it's not there yet but it's getting very quick. and that isn't enough to employ people some people like myself, a small businessman, it's hard for me to employ more people when i'm having to pay so much for everything. the price of everything is going up, the price of fuel, the price of electricity, the price of food, the price of everything is going up right now. so i don't think the government is doing a good job. >> host: thanks in washington. "the wall street journal" this morning another comparison between the two candidates is and so much on the role of government, the definition of patriotism. president barack obama says he wants the new economic patriotism that mitt romney calls t
. the offshoot of that is medical doctors are saying that we are doing less defensive medicine these days. the massachusetts medical society issued a report yesterday called "the -- state of the work force study or something like that, and they do find there's been a little shift, and doctors are now ordering fewer tests to, you know, the concept of defensive medicine -- explain that or -- >> host: please do. >> guest: okay. the concept is the patient comes in. the doctor says you're complaining of a headache, let's order up all of these tests and special scans to make sure that you don't have a brain tumor so you don't come back to me in five months and sue me for missing this. the medical profession tells you they are ordering fewer tests because now they see patients on a more routine basis, and they are not coming in complaining of a severe headache after not seeing a doctor for seven years because they have insurance and they can make primary care visits. >> host: okay. >> guest: and not show up at the emergency room. >> host: ivan in massachusetts on the democrats' line. >> caller:
respect the inherent right of self-defense displayed by turkey. >> i was a portion of today's pentagon briefing. you can see the entire event in our video library. and in just a couple of minutes comest defense campaign 2012 conference continues with a new jersey senate debate between democratic incumbent bob menendez and republican challenger, joe kyrillos a)i"aa! >> i have all the channels. house, senate plus author book reviews come the speeches, those kinds of things. @l.a. bill is coming up on the floor in the house, i watch camino, which channel i want to see because i have them all. if there is either a speech i know that you covered or a book review or someone, i am going to watch that. when i want to find out something, that has some value to a comment that's going to be one of the first places i look. i mean, i am obviously a public broadcasting fan. i watch those channels. out of a couple hundred channels i probably have five to 10 at the most that i'm going to go to. but it's going to include all the c-span channels. >> he was presidential. i think you just never know what
building for cybersecurity including investment in strong cyber defense protections and work force training. for decade, industry and government worked together to protect the security of assets that reside in private hands from airports and sea ports, broadcast systems, and nuclear power plants. there's no reason we can't work together in the same way to protect the cyber systems of the core critical infrastructure upon which so much of the economic well being, national security, and daily lives depend. nonetheless, in the current landscape, we execute cybersecurity missions under an al mall gum of authorities that need to be updated, clarified, and streamlined. the plain fact is that we must address cybersecurity now, not years from now, and dhs is committed to working with all affected parties to move forward quickly on this issue. in the meantime, we're moving forward on building our own world class cybersecurity team with a strong dependable work force pipelined for the future. we are making investments in the cyberwork force, growing our national cybersecurity division by more than 60
words will probably drive things more than anything else. and that's defense, my dear boy, events. and then we get back to what you are saying. what will be their management style? what will be their ability a stunt history to respond to those events as they arise. spoonbill, what leadership is have you picked up? >> i think we have an incumbent president so presumably we know how he will be inclined to cover but i suppose one could argue that maybe not becoming, obama took over and over nine in a very unusual circumstance, huge majority in both houses, wind at his back but also apparently failed administration, huge financial crisis. he did various things we could second guess them or not, but rahm emanuel is as chief of staff, they're presumably because he understood how to manage congress, and that too much of a surprise have some differing to congress. may be on obamacare well. he left and is now mayor of chicago and then, of course, there was a 2010 in election and then president obama had a very different circumstance but it may be that actually he gets a new start if he win
our name. >> such an important question. - democrats need to start playing defense. it's been a pretty good it could have done. on the header hand, and again, this is a nonpartisan organization in the way they have to be seen and it is an acceptable skepticism the republicans are reaching but in other issues of life every single piece of legislation and the nation. on the collective bargaining come from republican. on education etc., and we can go into all of these that we need to be aggressive with both sides in the case this wasn't a priority and they were willing to spend the capitol on the issue. at a time that we are facing shock it's a unique economic crisis we need smart economic policies. on immigration reform it's a smart economic policy. it to grow one of the benefits of an immigration reform is the center for the economic that two weeks ago we released the report were the benefits of having the dream act passed so we start playing the politics and we need to be practical. >> i wanted to say that and i wanted to quote my ancestors because they almost always were right. dr. ma
